  • Perfect for couples

    "This is the perfect rental for couples. The two bedrooms and bathrooms are identical in size and side by side so it makes it easy when you're traveling with another couple. The house is very clean and well equipped with plenty of cooking utensils and a microwave. The location is perfect - it's right on the bay with incredible views. We thoroughly enjoyed spending evenings out by the dock. The location is just a short golf cart away from everything you need including the grocery store, Nippers, Grabbers and the beach. We definitely plan to stay there again."

  • Private Vacation

    "Shore Thing was a very nice house. It is very Private and the beaches are as well. You will need a golf cart but it is worth it. If you are looking for a nice, private vacation this is your place to stay. The owner was very helpful and got back to me right away as did the caretaker. We will rent from them again!"

  • Exceeded Expectations!

    "My wife and I spent our first Bahamian get away this past week at Seaside...been all over the Caribbean scuba diving but found a jewel at Great Guana Cay...many amenities with the property such as personal golf cart (mode of Guana travel), Atlantic beach access and absolutely beautiful sunsets from the deck!!....went lobstering and island hopping (many within 20 minute trip)...would have gone fishing off shore but ran out of time (rental boats close by)...grocery store on island (5 minutes by golf cart)...several Bahamian-style restaurants (and shops) including world famous Nippers on the beach (dont miss famous Sunday afternoon beach pig roast)..fly in to Marsh Harbor Airport and take convenient 30 minute trip by ferry to Guana Cay...will return soon for a longer stay!!!"

  • Quiet island time

    "We just returned from a one week stay at Gumbo Limbo and had a very relaxing time there. The house is excellent quality with a real beachy feel from the decor to the views of ocean on both sides. The screened in porch is excellent and we ate all our meals out there as well as many card games. The no-see-ums will still get you at some point though. The house has lovely breezes so we only needed the fans on our last day. The community dock being nearby did mean some golf carts and people traipsing past but apart from that we rarely saw anyone at the semi private beach. The snorkelling was ok there, having snorkelled around the world it was acceptable. My husband saw a large manta ray and we saw a reef shark. There is fan coral and someone else saw a turtle. Most days it was a little windy on that side and some choppiness to the ocean but what amazing aqua water. You will need to rent a golf cart, I think that its not an option. I walked once from the beach but it wasn't possible to go right along the beach so it is a bit of a long walk. The track on the house side of the island degrades after the Orchid development into a very rough bumpy track. Being 22 weeks pregnant I often had to hop off and walk. So I'd be aware of this if you have problems with riding a bumpy track. Of course we sometimes didn't go into the town and enjoyed chilling out at the house. The garden is very nicely done and there are lots of great books to read as well as internet, radio, tv, dvds. The island does not have a huge array of dining options. We did dine at Nippers but felt Grabbers was better for a bit more Caribbean flare. We brought some groceries across on the ferry but did run low so went to the grocery store on the island which had just as much or little! You can get creative with a box of brownie mix, there's an oven, or make your own cocktails, there's a blender. There are quite a few feral cats on the island. There were three that hung around the house. Hope you like cats. Our little boy enjoyed giving them a few tidbits. We had quite the journey to get home due to lining up ferry, flights and customs. I'd allow a good amount of time between any connecting flights and make sure you know the ferry times, we had to wait around a bit for the last ferry but its right at Curly Tails so you can enjoy a drink and some conch fritters while waiting. Overall we had a very enjoyable holiday and it was what we wanted, quiet, beach and warm weather."
